 I don't know what the other treatments are going to look like yet so
 I am checking this in so that I can see the results. It is still not
 ready yet.

+<h2>Insurrection Web Tools for Subversion</h2>
+This project got started because of a need for a simple, self-contained, production SVN server
+with some level of administration and repository browsing via the web.
+ Some of the design goals for this project:
+ <ul>
+ <li>Must work without the need to install anything on the host OS.&nbsp;
+ This means that all of the functionality of this system must work in a
+ user process with a locally built Apache and Subversion code base.</li>
+ <li>Make use of modern browser technology to reduce server side overhead
+ and bandwidth usage.&nbsp; This means using client-side XSLT transforms to
+ embellish XML output into a presentable form.</li>
+ <li>Try not to use any browser or platform specific extensions if at all
+ possible.&nbsp; This means that none of the JavaScript will do browser
+ detection.&nbsp; <i>There is one case were we have to check for a Microsoft-ism
+ due to the lack of a common standard.</i>&nbsp; The minimum browser support is
+ for Firefox 1.0 and Mozilla 1.7.x with IE 5+, Opera, and Safari to be worked
+ with if reasonable.</li>
+ <li>To provide a way to administrate and support multiple repositories on the
+ same server.&nbsp; Currently the code does not support a single repository only
+ format since it assumes a multi-repository structure.&nbsp; Support for single
+ repository configuration will be looked at if it does not adversely impact
+ the support for multiple repositories.</li>
+ <li>...more to come...</li>
+ </ul>
-<p>This is the initial web content for your project. Please customize
-this to fit your project. You don't need to answer all these questions
-or follow this exact format, but we do like to see this kind of
-information before we approve projects for public viewing.
+<h3>Project Status</h3>
+The current code is in active use on at least two non-public Subversion servers.&nbsp;
+This does not mean that the project is complete or stable.&nbsp; Many things have not
+been cleaned up or as fully supported as I would like.&nbsp; There is also a lack of
+clean documentation as to how to install the code.&nbsp; This is because, so far, it
+has always been installed by the same person who it.
+The goal of this set of tools is to become a reasonably complete Subversion repository
+browsing system plus a simple administration system for repository access controls.
-<p>Until your project is approved, only you can view it and work on
+<h3>Insurrection Logo</h3>
+ ...or should I say, lack there of...
+ If someone comes up with a better logo that what I have done, please feel free to
+ share it.&nbsp; The Insurrection system is designed to allow for others to adjust
+ its looks and branding, specifically such that the server can fit cleanly into
+ a corporate environment.&nbsp; This means that whatever logo is used, it will be
+ one that can easily be replaced.&nbsp; There is no need for this project to
+ scream about itself in every installed system.
